Teams

A total of 33 teams contested the championship - 31 teams from Ireland plus London and New York. As in previous years, Kilkenny footballers did not field a team. New York does not participate in the qualifiers.

Format

provincial championships on a knock-out basis. All the teams beaten in the provincial matches (except New York) enter the All-Ireland Qualifiers in rounds 1, 2 and 4. The qualifier matches are knock-out and eventually result in four teams who play in the All-Ireland Quarter-Finals against the four provincial winners. From the quarter-finals onwards the competition is entirely knock-out.

Broadcasting

RTÉ, the national broadcaster in Ireland will provide live television coverage of the championship. In the second year of a deal running from 2014 until 2016, a number of matches will also be broadcast by Sky Sports, with Sky having exclusive rights to some games.[3][4] Australia's terrestrial Seven Network announced it would not broadcast Gaelic games following its coverage of the 2014 Championship.[5]

As in the 2014 season, the GAA and RTÉ will provide streaming service called GAAGO intended to stream championship games worldwide.[6] The subscription-based service will be available to fans everywhere in the world outside of the island of Ireland, including all the games broadcast in Ireland exclusively by Sky Sports.[7] All televised games from the football and hurling championships, as broadcast by both RTÉ and Sky will be available to watch on GAAGO.[8]

All-Ireland Qualifiers

A and B Teams

An A and B system for the qualifying draws was introduced in 2014 and continues in 2015. The teams are designated as A or B depending on which half of their provincial championships they are initially drawn to play in. Typically the provincial draws are not seeded resulting in random A and B team designations.

In all qualifier rounds A teams play A teams and B teams play B teams. Usually the A teams complete their provincial games before the B teams which allows the A qualifier games to be scheduled a week before the B qualifier games.

Round 1

The first round consists of all teams that fail to reach their provincial semi-finals with the exception of New York. 16 teams in total take part.

In round 1 four A teams play four A teams and four B teams play four B teams. The eight round 1 winners play the eight beaten provincial semi-finalists in round 2 of the qualifiers.

The following teams take part in this round:

Semi-Finals

There is no draw for the semi-finals [10] as the fixtures are pre-determined on a three yearly rotation. This rotation ensures that a provinces's champions play the champions of all the other provinces once every three years in the semi-finals if they each win their quarter-finals. If a qualifier team beats a prvincincial winner in a quarter-final, the qualifier team takes that provincial winner's place in the semi-final.
